Best Answer

Except for "war nickels", none. All US nickels except those minted from 1942 to 1945 are made of nickel and copper.

"War nickels" contained 1.75 gm of silver instead of nickel because of wartime needs. A troy ounce is about 31.1 gm so you'd need about 18 war nickels to yield an ounce of silver.

How many nickels make 1 oz of silver?

Except for the famous "war nickels" made from mid-1942 to 1945, the answer is "none", because all other US nickels don't contain silver. Since 1866, the coin has been made of an alloy of 75% copper and 25% nickel. If you have war nickels with a large mint mark on the back, these do contain a small amount of silver - 1.75 gm to be exact. Because one troy ounce is about 31.1 gm, you'd need 31.1 / 1.75, or about 18 war nickels to contain a troy ounce of silver.


How many silver nickels does it take to make an ounce of silver?

The first thing to know is that the US produced silver nickels ONLY during WWII, when nickel metal was needed for the war effort. Contrary to popular misunderstanding, most pre-1965 US nickels are made of the same cupronickel alloy as modern nickels and don't contain any silver at all. "War nickels" were minted from late 1942 to 1945 and are distinguished by a large mint mark letter over the dome of Monticello. They weighed 5 gm when new and were 35% silver, so they contained 1.75 gm of pure metal each. Silver is sold by the troy ounce (31.1 gm) so you would need 31.1 / 1.75 = 18 coins (rounded to the nearest whole number) to extract one troy ounce of silver.


How many nickels in a troy ounce?

The standard weight of a U.S. nickel is 5 grams. Therefore, there are 6.32 nickels per troy ounce (31.6 grams). If you are interested in determining the weight of silver in troy ounces in "war nickels" issued between 1941 and 1945, multiply the number of nickels by 0.0557.

A troy ounce is roughly 31.1 gm; rounded to the next whole number of coins you'd need 31.1 / 1.75 = 18 war nickels to get one ounce of silver.It's important to remember that most US nickels are not silver.

They can be identified by a large mint mark letter over the dome of Monticello on the back.
